NIU graduate releases first book

Northern Illinois University alum Darcia (Dettore) Kunkel, formerly of Somonauk, recently released her debut book, “40-Something and Fried,” on Amazon Books.

Kunkel is a mom of three, wife, author, editor and juggles all kinds of other plates those roles create. Often feeling tired and overwhelmed, Kunkel writes about the ups and downs of the life of a 40-something. Honest, funny and entertaining, “40-Something and Fried” is a must-read for any woman who has hit 40 and has wondered if this life is really what she signed up for.

Kunkel leads conversations for the “40-Something and Fried Nation” on Facebook. To join the conversation or to find out more about her, visit her Facebook page and follow her on Twitter.

“40-Something and Fried” can be purchased as a paperback or Kindle version on Amazon.com, where it made the top 10 hot new release consistently all throughout the launch day.
